MUSIC NEWS: HALESTORM GOES “INTO THE WILD LIFE” AT LAST

Atlantic recording group Halestorm has announced today's release of
"INTO THE WILD LIFE." The GRAMMY® Award-winning hard rock band's long
awaited third studio album and follow-up to 2012's blockbuster "THE
STRANGE CASE OF…" is available now in stores and online.

Recorded last year in Nashville with GRAMMY®-nominated producer Jay
Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church) at the helm, "INTO THE WILD
LIFE" is highlighted by the historic new single, "Apocalyptic." The
track recently ascended to the top at Active Rock radio outlets
nationwide in an astounding 9 weeks – the first time a female-fronted
band has scored #1 hits at the format three times as well as the first
to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. Furthermore,
"Apocalyptic" has hit #1 at Mainstream Rock radio, marking Halestorm
as the fourth-ever female-led act to top the format more than once. As
if that weren't enough, the song's electrifying companion video has
drawn close to 1.5 million individual views thus far at Halestorm's
official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PXkCAiV0Ww.

This week, frontwoman Lzzy Hale will be introducing new songs from
"INTO THE WILD LIFE" throughout each day on Sirius XM's Octane. The
band will conclude the week with a live performance and signing at
Grimey's in Nashville at 2 PM on Saturday, April 18. For more

In other news, a new companion video for "Amen," the next single from
"INTO THE WILD LIFE," recently debuted at RollingStone.com
(www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-halestorm-rebel-against-day-jobs-in-raucous-amen-video-20150302).
Directed by DJay Brawner (Ed Sheeran, Panic! At The Disco), the
provocative clip is approaching 1 million views at
www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGchlqCjj8A.

In addition to its extraordinary popular success, "INTO THE WILD LIFE"
has also begun receiving unprecedented critical acclaim. "(The album)
is a different beast altogether," declared veteran rock journalist Jon
Wiederhorn at Yahoo! Music, "one that forsakes everything that has
worked for Halestorm thus far (slick production, traditional
songwriting arrangements, a radio-ready mix of rockers and ballads)
and takes a leap into the unknown… The risk of following its instincts
has paid off. From the angular, aggressive attack of the metallic
'Mayhem' to the plangent piano and aching vocals of the ballad 'Dear
Daughter,' from the brash, confrontational anthem 'Sick Individual' to
the offbeat church choir-flavored blues rock of 'Amen,' Halestorm has
taken conventional radio rock and turned it on its head. Challenging
and eclectic, but too catchy to ignore, 'INTO THE WILD LIFE' is a
spirited and slightly reckless release from a seasoned rock band that
has learned the rules only to willfully break them."

Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock's most explosive live
acts, Halestorm will celebrate "INTO THE WILD LIFE" with an epic US
headline tour, "Carnival of Madness Presents Halestorm Powered by
Monster Energy." The trek is set to get underway April 22nd with a
sold-out show at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium, and then will
travel through mid-June. The Pretty Reckless and Starset will support
Halestorm through June 3rd; Rival Sons and Royal Thunder will open all
remaining dates. For remaining ticket information, VIP packages, and
